The Housing Industry is an easy target for cyber attacks due to the amount and type of data that they have on record. For Housing Associations cybersecurity should be at the top of their agenda.
It is estimated that UK Housing Associations manage around 2.4 million homes. For the residents of these houses, Housing Associations will hold a wealth of confidential and sensitive information, such as phone numbers, postcodes and bank details and other personally identifiable information. With multiple people accessing this information, such as agents, landlords, tenants and maintenance staff, there will be a number of vulnerabilities and entry points where the system can be infiltrated. Ensuring that any data held is secure is key to a Housing Association’s responsibilities to its residents.
